Founders of start-up companies are supported here in product development and in setting up a competitive company and are assisted by targeted measures.

Information

Start-ups will find here in NOI Techpark one of the most modern business incubators in Europe. Covering an area of 1,200 square metres, this is the place for start-ups to fine tune their product ideas and shape their business model. New ideas are being created here within a network of researchers, students, entrepreneurs and other start-ups, and projects are being developed into market-ready products and services. Numerous events bring the community together and encourage the exchange of ideas.

We are able to add new start-ups to our start-up incubator several times a year. Our goal is not to support as many start-ups as possible, but to take in and assist those who are pressing ahead with forward-looking projects and who have a good chance of entering the market and remaining permanently in the marketplace. To do this we evaluate the team (competences, entrepreneurial spirit, goals and aspiration for growth), the business idea (degree of innovation, uniqueness of what is being proposed, status), the market potential (market size, competition, obstacles, scalability of the business idea) and the financing strategy. Please note: we will only take on start-ups whose registered office and operational headquarters are in South Tyrol.

In our Start-up Incubator we support the process of product development and the development of a competitive company through workshops, seminars and individual training sessions. We set up contacts with potential strategic partners and facilitate access to finance. In the existing infrastructure of office spaces, co-working spaces, scientific and experimental laboratories, the start-ups also have enough opportunity to develop themselves and their own ideas.
